Touring and jamming with the band 30 Seconds to Mars proves to be time consuming for band member Matt Wachter. The bassist has just announced his leave from the band due to lack of time spent with his family.
The band's tour in El Paso, Texas on March 1, 2007 marks the last show of Wachter. Vocalist Jared Leto announced it to the audience towards the end of the show and then dedicated the last score "Attack" for Wachter.
Other members have also been supportive towards Wachter's decision, saying that they respect his decision and bid him luck. Being together for almost 9 years has been memorable for each of them, but the remaining member refuse to be let down by the moment, "This is not an end, it is a new beginning. There are times we all wish for things to stay the same, but change is inevitable and we believe it must be embraced as a gift, not as anything else. There are only positive feelings between us all and we will always remember the wonderful contributions he made to this project."
